LYMPHOMA?? REALLY SCARED
« on: August 26, 2014, 08:18:11 PM »
Ok so I am 15 and pretty skinny 5ft 6 and 95 pounds. And recently I started to have some sharpish pain under my jaw. I'm scared it's an enlarged lymph node from Lymphoma! I work for community service at a dentists and they felt under there and didn't feel anything but it still hurts. When I kinda press hard under there I feel a lymph node and it feels kinda hard and online it says hard is lymphoma! Please help I'm really scared!

Ok edit where I feel the "hard" lymph node is not actually at the spot at which I'm having pain. But it still feels kinda bigger than the one on the other side which is trouble some for me. I have to use my thumb and push in to feel it though. It's also mobile not totally fixed in place

Lymphoma is a scare for me also, I have several which are enlarged and hard, but they have been that way for a long time. In your case, just jaw pain, that could be so many things besides lymphoma that i wouldn't jump to that.

Yea but those lymph nodes you don't really have to Dig for. You could be feeling a structural part of your esophagus or something.

No I'm quite sure it's a lymph node but it's not exactly where I'm having the pain. How deep would you have to dig if one of those lymph nodes under the jaw was enlarged?

I have one near my jawline that feels like a bean just under the skin. The other on my neck is the same way. I also found one down on my hip that has the same characteristics. They have been like that for over 2 years.

Yea not pressing hard at all. If i dig my fingers in under my jawline i can feel lots of structures that I could mistake as a swollen lymph node. But have you had any other symptoms?

I would imagine someone with lymphoma would have symptoms that were hard to ignore.

I'm literally having the same fear right now. Swollen gland under my jaw on the right side. Paranoid of lymphoma but no other symptoms...it's painless, rubbery feeling, pretty movable..and about the size of a kidney bean..
